Fifty Shades of Wine & Cupcakes

Fifty Shades of Grey wine has partnered with Prohibition Bakery of New York City, to create a mini cupcake recipe to go with their new wines inspired by the film, Red Satin and White Silk. I've never seen such an intricate and detailed cupcake recipe, but I hope the film is as involved:
